Delighted in by true saints

February 23, 2009

Jonathan Edwards, in his “Controversies” notebook on justification:

This grace of God manifested to his church is beheld, admired and delighted in by true saints, not merely from self-love or as it concerns their interest, but primarily as glorious in itself and as that wherein does marvelously appear the beauty and glory of the divine nature: and as such it is celebrated by them in their praises in Scripture from time to time by the names of righteousness and Holiness. – Yale-Works 21:336.
